Beach Nourishment

March 16, 2017 Update


Staging area at the East Helga Street Beach Access:
  Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, the company that will be constructing the beach nourishment projects for Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk and KDH, will be using the area immediately south of the East Helga Street Beach Access as a construction staging area.  The following information has been provided by our engineer:

 

The Town of Kill Devil Hills staging area is located on the upland portion of the beach lot located at Helga Street.  The contractor will attempt to minimize the area utilized within the staging area as best as practical as the beach and adjacent areas are used heavily by the public throughout the year. The contractor will cordon off and/or fence the access and staging areas to prohibit public access. Outside of emergency vehicle access, the staging areas and construction accesses do not need to remain open to the public while the areas are in use for the Project. It is anticipated that the contractor would attempt to minimize needless closure of the public access if the contractor is not actively using the access. All access and staging areas shall be restored to the pre-construction condition upon project completion at the cost of the contractor.
